|PRELUDE TO ABRAHAM - William Downing|
THIS INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER REPRESENTS A COMPLETE WORK OF FIFTY-NINE CHAPTERS, WHICH ARE THE CULMINATION OF AN INTENSIVE STUDY AND RESEARCH INTO THE SUBJECT, WHICH FIRST BEGAN IN 1945!!! THE WORK IS TRULY 'A WORK IN PROGRESS', AND I ANTICIPATE IT WILL TAKE ME A GREAT DEAL MORE TIME TO PUT IT INTO PRINT, IF I AM TO DO JUSTICE TO THE TIME AND LABOURS OF ITS AUTHOR. IT IS CERTAINLY THOUGHT-PROVOKING, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE BULK OF IT WAS WRITTEN A GOOD MANY YEARS AGO...

|Fizzy drinks - The problem of evil - Stephen A Richards|
This movie clip explores two major Christian approaches to understanding why there is evil and suffering in the world, using an analogy with a can of fizzy drink. In the first example, the contents of a fizzy drink can are seen to 'explode', because it has been shaken beforehand. This is compared to the Freewill Defence, which says that bad things happen in the world because we choose to do them. The second example suggests that bad things happen in order that we might learn not to do certain th...

|Ant killer - The verification principle - Stephen A Richards|
This short movie explores the notion of verification, by considering how we can know a statement is true prior to any experiential verification of it. For instance, how do we know that the statement 'Ant killer' on a tin of insect repellent is true (i.e that the spray kills ants)? Many would claim that the statement is factual, because the spray actually does kill ants! However, how we can know this is a 'fact', prior to using the spray for the first time? In terms of the wider subject matter, t...

|New and old buildings - Aquinas' second and third way - Stephen A Richards|
This is the second movie in this series, exploring topics in the philosophy of religion. The first movie considered Aquinas' way of motion. This second movie outlines the second and third of Thomas Aquinas' three arguments (or proofs) for God's existence, using an analogy with new and old buildings. In the second way, Aquinas sets out how the idea of causation (things needing to have a cause), can lead us to the notion that God exists...

|Cooked Chicken - Aquinas' First Way - Stephen A Richards|
This fun educational movie explores the first of Thomas Aquinas' three arguments (or proofs) for God's existence, using an analogy with cooking chicken. Aquinas' first way is often understood to be about motion, but this is not entirely accurate. Aquinas is actually talking about how things move from a state of potentiality to actuality, which he argues is something begun by God, and this is illustrated in this video by following the process of defrosting and then cooking a piece of chicken...

|Bridges - The design argument - Stephen A Richards|
This short clip explores the notion of design, by using an analogy with a bridge. In terms of design arguments for the existence of God, these can be set out in two different ways. Firstly, there are arguments from design. These consider the way things are in the world, and whether this suggests that God created it. Secondly, there are arguments to design. These consider how things should be (or what evidence there would be), if the world had been designed and made by God...

|The Hidden Truth: The nature of reality and the meaning of life - Wade C. Wilson|
The Hidden Truth considers wide-ranging fields of study to develop a logical path through compelling evidence to discover the nature of reality and the meaning of life. The study begins with a review of the most scientifically sound evidence and moves down a continuum of increasingly esoteric, though still solid, anecdotal evidence. This includes quantum physics, near death experiences, out of body experiences, reincarnation, and hypnosis-type contributions, including inter-life sessions and spi...
